The Constitution was signed on September 17—now known as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day—and was submitted to the states for ratification. Soon after the Declaration of Independence was written, the Constitution was written.

The Declaration of Independence was signed unanimously by the members of the Congress on July, 4,

    In the Monroe Doctrine, the president is very insistent on maintaining the independence of not just the U. In his later years he spent a great deal of time trying to rebuild the College of New Jersey Princeton.

John Adams assisted Thomas Jefferson in drafting and advocating the document whose signing demarcated the split from the British Empire and the consequent birth of the new American nation.In the Monroe Doctrine, the president is very insistent on maintaining the independence of not just the U.S., but also the former colonies to the south.
